If you’ve been in crypto, you’re probably all too accustomed to the volatility and price fluctuation of the market. Perhaps you’ve even been lucky enough to experience the joy of a crypto winter.
As expected, the crypto market has been pretty choppy over the past few months. While we may be experiencing a crypto winter, it’s important to remember that there’s no such thing as a bear market in crypto. Even during the coldest days of winter, these times are more commonly known as a builder’s market. Builders will harvest their crops/rewards when Spring comes. Markets are as cyclical as seasons. Good crops survive and grow stronger, it’s survival of the fittest.
Without paying attention to the daily fluctuations in price, the team over at Starfish Finance have been constantly building. Starfish Finance is a multi-chain DeFi and NFT-FI platform on Astar Network with a fast growing community on Polkadot. Born on Astar Network, one of the largest parachains on Polkadot, Starfish is getting ready to take off and pave the way for a new, multichain future. All the while, the team continues to spread positive vibes across the ecosystem and beyond.
While the always optimistic Starfish mascot Sean may be underwater (get it?) with work, it still hasn’t prevented him and the team from playing in the snow and building fun, community-powered features. Despite the fact that starfish technically don’t have a brain, that hasn’t stopped Sean from diving into the field of psychology. One of the most recent launches on Starfish is a Web 3.0 personality test, based on the famous Myers-Briggs type indicator.
The test itself is a fun reminder that crypto doesn’t need to be serious all of the time and there’s always room for positivity no matter how the market is doing. Additionally, taking the test also serves as a primer for crypto beginners and assists them to know themselves better as a crypto investor.
When taking the test, you’re immediately immersed in all things DeFi and NFT, with questions pulling from popular NFT projects and crypto terminology as you go along. The test isn’t just designed for beginners, but can also be enjoyed by the diamond hand degens and web3 frens. At the end of the test, you’re given your personality, see who your friends are in Web 3.0 and get the chance to win a $SEAN token airdrop or NFT whitelist ticket.
Speaking of $SEAN, Starfish’s recently announced initial dex offering (IDO) for its native token and endorsed by the community-led platform Tokensoft. Tokensoft has previously launched popular projects including Avalanche (AVAX), Acala (ACA) and Moonbeam (GLMR), but its launch of SEAN is the platform’s first Astar-based, and one of the few Polkadot projects’ token IDO. What’s more? The arms of $SEAN stretches beyond Tokensoft, and the starfish spaceship will dock on centralized exchanges, Huobi.
If you don’t want to leave it to chance with the token airdrop contest, you can participate in the #SeanInvasion and make it to planet starfish during the final, public token round. This round is dedicated to the newcomers of the Starfish world, looking to join the fun, spread good vibes and become a part of the planet’s unique culture.
As part of Starfish’s broader mission to create a multi-chain blockchain economy that goes even beyond Astar Network, this round is available to anyone, on any network. To see if you’re eligible for the second private token round, or to learn more about how to receive the giveaway airdrop, head over to the Aquarium or check out the Starfish blog for more information.
Although the market is looking bearish, at least we’re heading into a building season. If the market brings us into a crypto winter, build a snow fort. During this building season, it’s important for projects to remember to keep innovating, but more importantly have fun. Starfish Finance’s continued excitement and creative building is the perfect example of how to make it through any market conditions.
